While the new-gen Mahindra Thar has already been unveiled, the last-gen model makes for a better option for those planning to take up the overlanding culture. Here are a few great deals from the used car space.
Mahindra Thar is a well-known name around every Indian car enthusiasts. Based on the same design cues as the Jeep CJ3b, Thar enjoys a cult following around the Indian masses. Though Mahindra has unveiled the all-new Thar on the Independence Day this year, the last-gen model has not lost its charm. It for sure has lost its resale value. In comparison to the new-gen Mahindra Thar, the older model was rudimentary and utilitarian. These aspects, however, makes the last-gen Thar an off-roader’s delight. Also, models older than 2015 featured a mechanically-locking rear differential and better-looking dashboard. Here are a few examples that can be bought and worked upon to traverse any given terrain.
This particular Mahindra Thar is MY2016 model. With only 19,990 km on the odometer, it is fairly new. It has been modified to a fair extent. As a result, it now gets power windows, revamped suspension, and a touchscreen music system. Aftermarket steel rims with M/T spec tyres have also been fitted on this Thar. Therefore, it comes up as a pretty decent option with a negotiable asking price of Rs. 6.50 lakh.
This 2016 registered model is a pre-facelift version of the Thar. With an odometer reading of 60,000 km, it has seen a lot of roads, but the modifications on this off-roader suffice for those extra miles. It gets a custom hardtop with a leather-trimmed interior. Also, it gets a forward-facing rear bench, while the OEM steering wheel is replaced with a sportier unit.
The odometer reading on this 2018 example is a little over 21,000 km. It is a 2018 registered example. Talking of the modifications, it gets a set of aftermarket alloys, which are shod with A/T grade tyres. For those living in the National Capital Region of the country, this particular example can be used for another 8 years with no issues. Thus coming up as a great deal for them.
